It's time to kick off Racked's second annual Hottest Trainer competition: our search for the top fitness instructors in Miami! After sifting through all of our reader submissions, we've narrowed it down to sixteen cycling instructors, yoga gurus, boxing champs, and personal trainers, and at the end you'll get to vote on your favorite.
We'll be rolling out all the contestants over the next two weeks. Every day you'll learn about two trainers– who they are, what inspires them– plus, they'll be offering up some of their best fitness tips. Voting will begin on August 20th and run through August 28th, and each poll will be live for 24 hours. Eight men and eight women will go head-to-head bracket-style until one winner is crowned and announced on August 29th.
Promoting your favorite trainer via social media is key, so if you have a crush, don't be afraid to shout it from the rooftops—or your laptop. We'll be Tweeting, Instagramming, and Facebooking with the hashtag #RackedsHottestTrainers, so follow along.
